Break Down

   I keep thinking I can do it all.  I also think I can do it at the same time.  I am a full-time student who is just learning ng the computer. I am a mother and substitute teacher.  The past two weeks, my new ninth-grade daughter had so many things going on in school: sign for laptops parents from 5:30-7, meet the teachers, freshman parent day(what is that), and finally back to school items. Did I say I started school the same week?  My oldest daughter conveniently fired her childcare, so I had them for two weeks straight, after having them for months previously.  I had to put my foot down and say get new childcare(even if it broke my heart).  I took five classes, and I forget what assignment goes where or to whom.  You can not forget the gym now is once or twice a week.  The hair and nails are every three weeks.  I not only do not have the time, but nor do I have the cash.

  Two weeks ago, trying to keep up with family time and tradition, I decided to cook a big meal, including frying chicken.  The baby is walking around, and people are in my tiny kitchen. I forgot to say I had to downsize. I dropped the chicken in the hot oil and burn my hand and wrist almost to the bone.  Everyone thought it would not be a big deal and went on to eat.  The next day the doctor stated this is bad( I was like, no shit).  I had meds for burns, for pain, bandages, and a removable cast. This is all on my right hand, the hand I type with, eat with, and just about everything else with( I will keep it clean).

   I am now two weeks behind at school and playing catch up and looking a hot mess. Subbing with a bad hand, so the kids took full advantage.  My family, which is made up of mostly adults, keeps asking what is for dinner.  These are the same people who continue to look at my hand and say, " ooh, that is going to leave a scar."  I do not have a love life at all. I have gentlemen callers, but where am I going like this, and when would I ever have the time.

Hello, my friends,     I hope everyone is doing well and stayed safe and healthy today.  I hope I receive some followers and comments from those who are reading this blog.  We can all use some ideas outside of dancing(which is a great source of releasing stress).  I alI so hope to reach those who are not well and tell you that we all are wishing a fast recovery no matter what is ailing you.  I am not going to you give you the #we are alone together because we are not.  Some of us are single and alone.  Some of us are talking to a pet, some of us( like myself) are single parents, some of us have annoying spouses right about now, and some of us thought have 5 or 6 kids was a good idea up until today.  But seriously,  I hope we all are getting through this in a positive, upbeat manner.  I am here, and I will be checking my blog all-day to make sure I am here for you.  So leave a comment if you just want to be heard.  Soon I will start a podcast and work on my YouTube channel to keep tha

Quarantine and children

    We are now our children's teachers, and I struggled to help my high school daughter with her work.  I would like for us to share with others some websites or information they may. We can not blame others if we do not get involved.  There are elderly grandparents raising grandchildren who may not understand how the new curriculum is being taught today.  Some parents have turned to homeschool websites.  You can google high school math or look up blogs for preschools. You can also download zoom and have your child get on with other students to study together while you monitor what they are doing.  Help those you may know are ill, and children may need your help via phone, skype, or zoom.   Good luck and stay safe and healthy.  If you like my blog, please follow.


I haven't posted in a while.  I had to come back to New York to sell my home.  I became so busy with visiting friends and family.  I started to realize again, I seem to have difficulty saying no. And not saying no makes me sad, ashamed, and weak.  I am anxious to go back.  I also would love to have conversations started, whether positive or negative. I see, and I am ecstatic that I have readers, but I let them down because I was disappointed in how many and no followers.  I wonder who was really out there? I really want to connect to those I never met in person. I also bought a new puppy due to the grief I felt after losing mine.  This was another kneejerk thing that I had done.  This puppy eats everything and bites and chases everyone.  A bad time is an understatement, with the move and looking forward to beginning classes and concentrate on me.  I have to let go and let live.
